    Hi all,

    I have the X32 full size and the Core. I did a couple of gig's (smaller ones) and know my way around it but the last year unfortunately my health got to me and didn't do one bit. 

    Now with the new firmware and possibly some new gigs in sight I want to pick up the board again. I also assigned to some courses for mixing and learning the X32 desk more. I'm a novice... I did what I could on those gigs and it was reasonably alright but I was not confident and struggled a lot with the monitors and several smaller feedback issues. I felt also the mix didn't blend as I would have liked. The band was fine with it though and the audience never had any idea of my struggles LOL

    I guess we all started there and I was wondering though if someone in the community has a couple of multitrack recordings to share so I can learn the desk better as well as experiencing mixing craft. 

    Not asked is never get.

     

    I'd apprciate it very much, so thanks in advance if someone is willing to share something.

     

    Regards, Luc

      Hi Luc ( @LucDeBacker ), 


       


      Glad to hear you're getting back into the game.  I've always found Mike Senior's website to be a great resource for finding multi-tracks for practice.   http://www.cambridge-mt.com/ms-mtk.htm


       


      Shameless plug for Mike: I've read both of his books a couple of times now and picked up a lot from him. 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      Hey Ken,


      That is awesome. A lot of resource material there.


      I need to give it spin clearly. Thanks again.

    Hi All,

    I'm a recent arrival in the X32 user group as I've just bought an X32 Compact. Loving it so far, but am confused about screenshots I'm seeing of the X32 Edit desktop application. I'm on Mac, and the screen I get is pretty basic and industrial in nature, whereas screenshots I'm seeing from other people seem to look almost like the X32 itself, with proper representations of the on-console screen as well as a nicely set out scribble strip and cool graphics.

    Is this a limitation of the Mac version of the application? Or have I missed a "skin" setting somewhere?

      Older versions (v1-2) of Edit mirrored the console interface more accurately.  Edit v3-4 are completely different.

      Hi Martin ( @vdx ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  The manual is pretty "thin" in this area but based on the fact that there's only a single FX send knob per channel strip, I'm guessing that there's only a single FX bus and therefore all channels would go to the same FX engine.  What is confusing is that they are calling the FX a "24-bit dual engine DSP" but then under it they say "24-bit A/D and D/A Converter" so maybe those are the dual engines. 


       


      You could always use the Aux 1 Send/Returns to attach an external FX processor to the mixer. 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      Hi @KenMitchell



       


      Thanks for your reply. 


       


      Like you, I also think crucial information about his is no where to be found. Your answer is also my own conclusion.


       


      Confirmation on the issue would be nice though, since the reason I am looking at this mixer in the first place would be the effects  


       


      I need something small for a proper one man live act, with a minimum of extra effect modules. I need like 4-6 different effects at the same time and was hoping to get this from the mixer.

      Hi Martin ( @vdx ), 


       


      I've helped several friends who are solo performers and they've found the XR12 to work very well for them.  You may also want to browse through the TC-Helicon offerings, particularly the VoiceLive 3 and Play Acoustic.  Building a pedalboard might be a good route for you. 


       


      Hope this helps,

    I have an M32C I use with a router and run M32Edit on my Macbook Pro wirelessly. it works great. Can I CAT5 from the laptop to my X32 to use as a control surface? If not, why not Midas?

     

    Thanks!

      Hi Bruce ( @brucecrouch ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Yes, but you would need to configure the IP addresses on both the M32C and the MBP to static addresses since, without the router, you wouldn't have a DHCP server handing out addresses. 


       


      See this video for turning off DHCP and setting up static addresses: https://youtu.be/uZApEOXAjj4


       


      Even though it's for an iPad wireless setup, the process is pretty much the same for an MBP hardwired to the mixer without a router.  EDIT: Fast-Forward to 1:00 to get to the manual (static) address setup. 


       


      Let us know if you need a hand with the setup.

    Please remove the limitation of X32 Edit that prevents entering of an arbitrary hostname.

    On my network, it's convenient to have hostnames for various devices, including my mixers.  However, X32 Edit assumes that we only want to enter IP addresses and actively prevents me from entering any characters otherwise.

    Additionally, it would be helpful if X32 Edit support command line parameters, so that a simple shortcut could be made to connect to a mixer and sync immediately on load.

    Ca someone tell me how to order replacement screws for for attachment of the plastic side panels to the chassis of the M32R?  I think they are T15 torx.  One appears to be about 17mm from head to toe, and the other about 12mm.

      i think the easiest and cheapest way would be to go to your local screw/metal dealer and purchase some of these (only cent per piece in packs of 1000)

    While looking about the user in/out options for use in the 'card out' column, It almost looks to me like the ability to overdub or replace tracks with the X-Live card might be an unintended (or maybe intended) perk with the new 4.0 firmware? See the attached user out patch. Does this not make that user bank of 8 card outs only actually replace local track 6? Card out 1-8 has user outputs 1-8 which is setup for card playback tracks 1-5, 7 and 8 and local input ch 6 as the assignment. Wouldn't this replace 1-5,7 and 8 with a copy of themselves adding (replacing) only the material on local input 6 to track 6?Screen Shot 2019-11-17 at 6.44.18 AM.png

      You're right, Gary, it looks as though it could work. I'm sure you'll find the time to give it a whirl...

      It will not work! You can't playback from the card while you record. When you hit record every time a new session will be created.

      GaryHiggins

      @OliverStein  Thanks. Yup, I was able to give it a shot and it appears to be a no go. Too good to be true and a big case of wishful thinking I guess! You can seperate the USB card playback and the SD section record (or the reverse) but not SD play and SD record within itself. It's one or the other, once in record as you said it's a new session overwritting all tracks not selective tracks, routing be damned. I guess it's back to the old SD to DAW and DAW to SD with track replacement for me. A tad more tedious but not a total deal breaker.

    I just want to make a separate thread to thank Rex Becket for all his invaluable help over the past days. He showed a lot of patience and wrote very clear tips and instructions on how to get started on this beast (XR16).

    It is without a doubt, without that help, I'd still be kicking the walls, yelling at the screen and all manner of other things hahaha!

    Rex, much MUCH appreciated, and if I could hit the kudos tab 100 times I would

      Thanks for the kind words, Dennis.


       


      It's a shame all our exchanges were not in the same thread. It would have made a handy reference for other new XR users. 


       


      If it makes you feel any better about your trials over the last few day, you have gone through the same process as most people do when first moving from analogue mixers to a digital one - just a lot quicker. The main stumbling blocks are: Network settings; Control layers; Effects and Routing. These things are quite different from usual analogue practice. The good news is that most digital mixers follow similar concepts.

      Sounds like we may have the major topics for an updated tutorial series?  I wonder if we can get Phil Gates to do them for us, although it looks like he's relocated from LA to Switzerland now?


       


      I'm going to brainstorm with my colleagues on Monday regarding "Networking for Musicians".

      @KenMitchell 


      Yes - you can't do much with today's technology in any field without a basic grasp of networking. I used to run courses on it for projectionists when Digital Cinema first hit the streets. It generally took practical workshops to get the concepts to stick.

      @RexBeckett ,


       


      Agreed.  One of my colleagues already replied that we should consider scenario based tutorials with suggested setup "recipes".  He went on to say that it might be a good idea to set up a GNS3 test environment online somewhere for people to try out.

    Judging by rumors there may be something new on the block, but really? Why on earth remove downloads of current firmware/software before a replacement is out?  Even then, older versions should be archived and available to users who for some reason need/want them. Now X/M-Edit for remote control as well as current firmware is completely missing. No current releases, no old versions.

    X/M-edit has also recently been tagged as a legacy-product meanwhile there is a beta of a new version in circulation. Again ... really?

    The aliens running this company must be very confused

      Yes I agree with you.

      While we users can't change the downoad pages and put the files back, I and other users here are having versions saved (backuped) of the firmware and software. What are you looking for and maybe I or someone else can help you with that.

      I have my own archives of firmware and software for all kinds of gear, so I'm expressing an opinion on behalf of users in general. What about those who pick up a new console today and need firmware and software for it? There are readme-files describing FW 3.09 and 3.11 of which 3.11 is tagged legacy. To a new user it looks like 3.09 is "current", but the firmware isn't there. Really???

      Indeed.  The factory refurbished X32 I received for use at my church from the ebay-US Music Tribe Factory store arrived today.  The link they emailed me for product registration yields an "Error 502 - Bad Gateway", as do links from the Sweetwater How-to webpages for downloading the X32-edit software.  Both sources point to internal music-group.com webpages.  There are no firmware upgrades available (mine came with 3.08) and no X32-edit software available on the main Behringer support website. 


      Quite honestly, I'm wondering if we just made a horrible mistake...

      Hi Carl @dietzer ,


      Welcome to the forum. The reason why you are getting that error is probably because the documentation they provided is quite old. The parent company of Behringer, Midas, Turbosound, etc. use to be called Music Group. That got changed to Music Tribe and their sites is now music-tribe.com. To register the X32, you can do that here


       


      The firmware upgrades etc. have been pulled (for reasons unknown) prior to the release of the new firmware (4.0 - to be released very soon) along with the respective apps. If you need any of the current files before 4.0 release, one of us can provide them. But I would highly recommend upgrading to the 4.0 when it is released. It has many feature (long requested) as well as the DP48 support. 


       


      I can assure you that you did not make a mistake in getting the X32.

      Thanks, Paul, for the quick and informative reply.  It's good to know that we have not made a mistake. 


      I'm guessing no one outside of Behringer knows when the 4.0 firmware and/or X32-edit will be released.  So if someone could provide copies of the 3.11 firmware and the 3.2 X32-edit while we wait, I'd be extremely grateful.


      Many thanks!

    Hi All,

    Is it possible to use the Berhinger MX882 to run 5.1 surround sound through a couple amplifiers and then to the 6 speakers (including 1 sub)? To do this would I need a 5.1 receiver of some sort or might a switch such as this work: Decoder Back.jpg 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
